Cosplay City is in danger when the evil Dolmeck shows up. Commanding his army of monsters, he plans on destroying everything. Only one person can stop this: Cutey Honey. After she is released from her dormancy, Honey Kisaragi becomes the multi-transformational android Cutey Honey. However, the least is expected when Honey is faced with an old enemy from the past: Panther Zora.
Coming hot off the heels of watching the original 1973 Cutey Honey I had a lot to look forward to. For the most part Shin Cutey Honey delivers a much more solid experience than the original. For those wondering, no, you do not need to watch the original 1973 series to enjoy this show. The original anime doesn't even finish the manga arc that this follows up. Just know a long time ago Cutey Honey beat up some bad guys and good enough.
The animation is fantastic in this show. It really gives a vibe of an early 90s anime or even American cartoon with it's dark cities and generally grosser enemies. It's a pretty large, and in my opinion needed, contrast from the 1973 series. I love that Danbei is now this cyborg thing. He still gets knocked around like before, but it shows the progression of his character needing to help Honey.
While the original did slip in small amount of nudity (one or two transformation scenes had nipples shown for some reason), this show opts to have nudity everywhere. Every transformation has nipples. So if this is your type of thing than you'll like it. There is also fan service everywhere, however I never feel it's enough to degrade Cutey as a character. Although it is certainly a lot more than the 1973 series.
The fault I have with this OVA is the story sadly. While the first arc is very involved with lots of progression, the show devolves into a monster of the week show after it. This is what Cutey was known for sure, but I just feel like things could have went better way in such a short anime.
Give it a watch. The Cutey Honey character needs more love. She is fantastic and the show is very solid.read more
New Cutey Honey is a very fun OVA series, with plenty of fan service.
The show has a fun feel, with the quirky humor of Go Nagai, and lots of slapstick humor as well.
It's formulaic, basically our hero Honey, she's a sexy blonde girl who is an android and transforms into a red-headed warrior! Her transformations are lavishly animated, her nude spinning body very smoothly animated with love.
Pretty much a lot of accidental boob touching and blushing, slapstick humor, crazy over the top villains, crazy fun fights. Done with great animation, very catchy music, and a large amount of naked busty women.
So, pretty much yes, the enjoyable nudity is this show's selling point. None the less, the other aspects of the show support that and it's a very fun and pleasant experience. I recommend checking it out.read more
